Stepping into Predictable Success with Les McKeown

Well-Oiled Operations with Stacy Tuschl

The stages of business every entrepreneur works through, what they look and feel like and how to work through them. The final stage of business, predictable success, you can expect to reach if you make the conscious decision to work through the other stages and what you need to commit to in order to reach this level. The crucially important thing that will happen when you hit the "whitewater" stage and why it will require immediate decisions and action. Different parts of your business can be in different stages of the life cycle. He explains the importance of the results of the quiz we use to determine if someone is going to be the best fit for a position we're trying to fill and whether or not those categories are deal breakers when it comes to someone being in the right role.

Growth with Predictable Success - Episode #264 with Les Mckeown

Path to Mastery

Les McKeown is the Founder and CEO of Predictable Success. Les first began to recognize recurring growth patterns early in his career as a serial entrepreneur. In addition to being involved in the launch of more than 40 companies before he was 35, he was at the same time a founding elder in a fast-growing church, while serving on the board of a number of charities and not-for-profits. Les used the experience he gained during that time to co-found one of the first business incubators in the world, which he and his then business partner developed over a decade into a multi-national consulting company that advised on the creation and growth of hundreds of organizations worldwide. Struck by the similarity of issues faced by all growing organizations, Les began to codify his understanding of the repeating patterns of growth, publishing his Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller "Predictable Success: Getting Your Organization On the Growth Track - and Keeping It There" in 2010, followed in 2012 by "The Synergist: How to Lead Your Team to Predictable Success". Les is a trusted advisor to fast-growth SMEs and thriving not-for-profits as well as Fortune 500 companies and a number of the largest government agencies in the world.
